This fall, over 20 millions students are preparing to return to college campuses. Of those, approximately 12 million will be attending college for the first time – and just over 2 million will be experiencing dorm life for the very first time. Of course, that means that those same students will likely be living away from home for the first time in their lives – an intimidating fact in any situation, but especially so when it is compounded with roommates they don’t know, classes they are unfamiliar with and a campus that seems to large to navigate. At Rose Hill Flowers, we understand how very important it is to you that your student will feel as comfortable as possible in their new space – and to that end, we have lovely dorm decor that will create a personal and homey vibe.
You will often hear us speaking about the benefits of green plants, which are many. They are especially useful to college students, as green plants can detoxify the air, improve concentration and focus, and promote a sense of well-being. When looking for the perfect plant, we suggest you consider small dish gardens, terrariums, compact cubes or small decorative vases. Because although the benefits of plants in a dorm room are big, the space available generally is not.
One of our favorite recommendations to achieve serenity with dorm decor is a succulent arrangement. Succulents are not only uniquely beautiful and interesting, but they are famously easy to care for. A new college student has many things to worry about, from being on time to class to finishing their first term paper – worrying about a high maintenance plant is likely not one their radar. Our gorgeous succulents are perfect, able to withstand a bit of neglect and continue to thrive.
College dorms don’t allow pets, but your animal lover can take solace in the adding some whimsical dorm decor. This Mini Kitty will provide a 4 inch plant and a lot of smiles – and don’t forget, we have one for the dog lover as well. Remind them of their best friend back home with these adorable planters we know they will love.
